Being born to Taldor mage parents, Dovian was always expected to be a spell casting prodigy, and that he was, just not the one anticipated. From a very young age he realized that magic; rather than being a tool to be used; was a natural part of whom and what he was. He found himself able to manifest magic by pure force of will, and had an affinity for all magic items. It was that affinity that saw Dovian struck by cracking ball of blue lightning when playing in his father’s chambers as a small child. While unconscious he had a vision of an aged man with a long white beard who emanated power, emerging from a mighty storm cloud unleashing bolts of lightning. When Dovian awoke even at that young age he knew that he was a stormborn, a rare lineage of sorcerer.
